I could not agree more about how great a colour purple is in the garden.

In the frenetic world we live in these days, mauves and blues in the garden create a space that feels relaxing and calming to unwind in. Mixed in with some white flowers, it is especially good. It is also a particularly good summer colour, because the late evening light causes it to appear almost glowing and it softly shines out, really lifting the spirits.

If you are also looking for some colour excitement in the garden, paradoxically it also sits really well with yellows, oranges and reds, for those hot colour flower beds.
